Welcome to Pan Am Communcations

Pan Am Communications has just upgraded its facility to better serve our clients.  We now feature Avid Media Composer® 1000XL in an upgraded suite. This 1:1 uncompressed video system is dual stream thus allowing for 3D effects to be in real time.  Powered by a MacIntosh G4 computer, it uses the Meridian capture card and has eight digital audio inputs and outputs. We have also added an Avid MC Express® suite for online and offline editing as well as multimedia production. 

Pan Am Communications now features three complete AVID editing suites. We have equipped the uncompressed  suite with 3D effects, digital Betacam input and output and DAT digital audio. Our other two suites offer component Betacam SP input and output. The MC Express suite also offers SVHS input and output. Working in the digital domain, the Avid can produce high-end effects and sharp images that are impossible to attain in a tape-based editing system. Your project retains the crispness and quality of the original film or video. Each Avid system is equipped with the latest Avid release, and is updated on a regular basis. Working with the Avid non-linear system enhances our ability to realize your creative ideas.
